Studies & Activities

We offer a great lineup of activities that meet throughout the week. We offer several classes for adults that are aimed to help us develop as Jesus followers in our intellect (head), our passions (heart) and our actions (hands).

Midweek at First

August 30 - December 6
No classes on October 18 or November 22
We’re offering several discussion-oriented studies designed to help you grow as a Jesus-follower into a difference-maker for a world of people far from God. All studies listed below, as well as programming for children, preschool, and students, begin at 6:00 pm.


Led by Deron Spoo / Room 405 in the Children's Bldg
Exodus is the journey of God’s people delivered from slavery and destined for freedom. Along the way, they discover the one true God who controls history, who is holy, who speaks, and who controls history. For those who follow Jesus, the book of Exodus is a template for how to follow God even as we deal with life’s discouragements, distractions, and divisions.



Led by Dave McPherson / Room 403 in the Children's Bldg
God has uniquely called you to pursue Him, to grow toward maturity, and to lead others to do the same. What does maturity and multiplication look like? Through this class, we will explore how to grow toward spiritual maturity, how to give away our faith, and how to encourage others around you to do the same.



Led by Ron Campbell / Room 404 in the Children's Bldg
What characteristics come to mind when you think of a real man? We will explore the values and characteristics the Bible calls men to develop and explore ways in which we can grow these characteristics in our lives. God has designed us to radically love our children, to passionately lead our families with a heavenly purpose, to fight the culture, teach the scriptures, and live in a way that glorifies God.



Led by Alex Temple / Room 408 in the Children's Bldg

Join us for Gospel on the Ground by Kristi McLelland this Fall! This study unpacks the life of the early church in the book of Acts and shows us that the kingdom of God is always on the move, always looking outward to bring meaning and joy to a world searching for true fulfillment and hope. Sign up on the app to reserve your spot!



Led by Mary Kay Henderson / 4th Floor Conference Room in the Children's Bldg
Are you interested in learning some of our most beloved hymns in the Cherokee Language? We will explore some of the Cherokee words that are used in Christian music and what they mean, plus some conversation. Mary Kay Henderson, director of the Cherokee National Youth Choir will lead the class.

CHAIN BREAKERS (12 Step Recovery Program)

Led by Jim Barnes / Room 112 in the Detroit Tower
Do you have any hurts, hang ups, addictions, or frustrations? We do too and know that we can find freedom through Christ. As a group, we exist to challenge each other to grow and break the chains of addictions and/or compulsions through the power of the cross. We follow a biblically infused twelve-step process in an intentionally non-judgmental environment.
